Despite its bustling urban presence, Sydney has a rich and complex Aboriginal heritage. Hidden within its burgeoning city landscape, lie layers of a vibrant culture and a turbulent history. But, you need to know where to look. Aboriginal Sydney supplies this information.

The popular first edition established itself as both authoritative and informative; both a guide book and an alternative social history, told through precincts of significance to the city's Indigenous people. The sites within these precincts, and their accompanying stories and photographs, evoke Sydney's ancient past, and allow us all to celebrate the living Aboriginal culture of today.
